Varsity pride

Throughout the 2012-2013 school year, the Morning Optimist Club of Moreno Valley, California solicited donations from the community to purchase varsity jackets for student athletes who could not otherwise afford them at Moreno Valley High School.

Donations came from businesses and residents and enough was raised to purchase 18 jackets this year. Fundraising will continue to do the same for next year's student athletes.

For the student to receive a jacket, they had to maintain a 2.75 GPA. Shown here are the first six recipients. Their GPAs ranged from 3.66 to 4.7. Great job on and off the field!
